About

Slate8 is Colin MacDonald; some chap from the UK pioneering the future sound of living room DJing ;)

“Give Me Breaks” is an outlet for some of the better breaks mixes produced by Slate8. You can preview and download these mixes from the homepage or one of the categories from the menu on the right.

Wikipedia defines Breaks as: “Breakbeat (sometimes breakbeats or breaks) is a term used to describe a collection of sub-genres of electronic music, usually characterized by the use of a non-straightened 4/4 drum pattern (as opposed to the steady beat of house or trance).”

IMHO Breaks is one of the few electronic genres around that has enough variety to get people dancing and keep them there. It’s also one of the few genres that has a sense of humour and will sacrifice being cool for a smile.
